EXTENSION OFFICE NONSTOP IN OUT-REACH

by Marciano Paroy, Jr.

The Extension Office of the Kalinga-Apayao State College, with Dr. Maximo Garming at the helm, sustains its commitment to reach out to various clientele by providing them with trainings, seminars and workshops designed to answer their information and skill needs.

Last October 7, the Institute of Engineering, Mathematics and Applied Technology (IMEAT), conducted a Training on Stress Management at KASC Bulanao. The activity was aimed at equipping the participants with the fundamentals on handling situations that contribute to stress – and how to better manage one’s emotional and mental reserves in the event that stress has inevitably set in.

Dr. Maximo Garming, Dr. Raymund Balbin and Mrs. Marilou Sawadan gave the enlightening lectures to KASC alumni employed at St. Toni’s, Dep-Ed, LGU-Tabuk, Provincial Government and Saint Louis College of Bulanao. Giving the lecturers a hand were IMEAT Dean Danilo Falgui and IMEAT secretary Esther Guzman.

On the provision of skills, the Extension Office conducted a training on Candle-Making at the Lin-awa Center in Bulanao last October 4, with Mrs. Pefelia Buen teaching the craft.

Mrs. Buen, Secretary to the Board of Trustees of KASC, considers candle-making a very lucrative business if it is fully explored by enterprising individuals – considering that no one has yet cornered the venture in Tabuk.

The training in Lin-awa was participated in by teachers, nuns, and several members from the youth sector.

The Extension Office shall continue to build up its list of trainings this second semester.
